Adding your mom's worldly wisdom to any situation always makes it better, and clearly the EU forums agree with this sentiment! Elbonio of the European WoW forums wants you to ask your mum to draw the Lich King, even if she's never seen him before. If she asks what he looks like, just ask her to draw...

Not so long ago, I asked this very question in a poll, so it was nice to see this excellent forum post attempting to answer the query "which class should I roll to tank?" Jakalope of US Wildhammer-H goes over the strengths and weaknesses of each of our three current tanking classes (Warrior, Druid,...

Patch days always bring rumors of the next patch -- but I've got to say, this is the first time I've seen rumors of the patch 50ish patches from now. Zuzupetals starts off the madness by asking if anyone else had heard if 8.4 would be holodeck compatible. Other notable rumors of 8.4 include:...

When I rolled my baby UD lock (now 52 and lost somewhere in Feralas), my warlock friends told me that my first five talent points MUST be spent making Corruption instant cast. "Everyone does that," they said. Well, apparently not everyone. There's a 22-page thread on the General Forums arguing fo...

Mirages of Cenarius has what might be the most rare problem in all of Azeroth, right up there with "I am overpowered" and "There are too few people in the cave in AV and it's being attacked": she has too much gold. As she writes in the Professions Forum, she has 12,000 gold pieces and nothing to spe...

Player Magdar of Grim Batol server was interested in rolling a druid and asked for five reasons to do so. Players responses ranged from practical (versatility, survivability, instant cast flight form) to hilarious (more dance emotes than any other class). Even CM Tharfor got in on the fun with his l...

Over on the official forums, there's a nostalgic discussion of how to tell an old-school WoW player from a newbie. (Of course there's game knowledge -- but there's always the chance a newbie might have taken the time to read up!) So what makes the difference between an old-school player from the re...

Nayami over on Area 52 makes a good point in a recent thread on the official Mage forums about how magi must usually respec depending on which raid they're running:"So I was talking with a few random raiders on my server, and I was informed that SSC and TK has a large amount of frost immunities? I...

Bregdark is worried about Blizzard-- first we had Health and Mana potions, but those weren't enough. Then we had Superior Mana potions, Major mana potions, and now in Outland, we're chugging Super Mana potions. But where can Blizzard go from here?There are quite a few good suggestions in the threa...

Well, I think this collection of jokes on the official forums is absolutely hilarious -- combining my interests in both World of Warcraft and pirates -- but quite a few posters seem to feel the thread I'm about to point you to is quite groan-worthy. So if you don't feel like you can take yet another...
